Zagreb is a vibrant and unique city with many things to offer. It is unique with its historical center that is spread out and endowed with medieval legends. In the Zagreb Essential tour, I will show you its main sights, all of which are situated in the Upper and Lower Zagreb – the two parts that constitute the historical center of Zagreb. Within the two hours it is possible to see the main sites, so to see and understand the development of Zagreb throughout the centuries into what it is today.

On this tour I will provide with a local insight into Zagreb’s and Croatia’s culture, history, politics, mentality, and other important factors that affected the shaping of what Zagreb and Croatia are today.

With my local knowledge, I will also show you some hidden gems of Zagreb that are usually missed by visitors, and will take you through the walking tour across passageways and corridors that are great to avoid the crowds and have moments of shade during summer months.
